"Where We Started” - In April 1999, our two Innovative Construction Solutions (ICS) founders set out with a purpose: to build a different environmental construction company, on the foundation of building trust and lasting relationships - the “why” behind everything we do today. 

Reflecting on our humble beginnings, our journey began in Aliso Viejo within Co-Founder Hirad’s kitchen, where himself and Co-Founder John converted the kitchen space into a makeshift office! Later on, in our introductory year of business, Hirad and John set their sights on their first small office and warehouse space in Huntington Beach, where the two shared their office. Spending days in the field and nights in the office, they were laser-focused on delivering on their purpose by providing best-in-class responsiveness, service, and adding value whenever possible. Soon after the move, they made their first two permanent hires in the field, both who are still with the ICS family today!

Through trials and triumphs, our early opportunities and challenges shaped us. We solidified our core values while dedicating our daily lives to laying the foundation for what ICS is today. As we reflect on our 25-year journey, we're immensely proud of the legacy we've built through our work and the relationships we've nurtured since those formative years of 1999 from Hirad’s kitchen!

Our NorCal project teams are currently carrying out the final steps for the turnkey installation of a Passive Vapor Intrusion Mitigation System (VIMS) in Castro Valley, CA, for the protection of office workers at the new Castro Valley Sanitary District Building. Our scope of work on this project include the placement of approximately 420 tons of permeable gravel layer, installation of approximately 800 linear feet of VIMS piping and 14,466 sq ft of Drago wrap liner, sealing of the liner perimeter to the building footings and all pipe penetration, and smoke testing of the liner system. It’s important to note that this project unfolded amid challenging rainy conditions, and our project team has worked diligently to ensure that the weather will not interfere with the quality of the completed system. Team, thank you for your dedication and diligence to ensure the job is done right!

In a recent ICS Safety Short, SoCal Laborer Jose walked us through how to recognize unsafe behaviors within an active work zone. When present on an active jobsite, all employees, subcontractors, and outside visitors must comply with our safety protocols including wearing complete and appropriate PPE. These measures are implemented to safeguard the well-being of each individual present, as failure to comply may increase potential risks to individuals' health and safety. If you notice unsafe behavior on your project site, you have the right to authorize a Stop Work to pause all tasks until the issue is addressed and corrected. It is important to be aware of the safety protocols for your job site, and to not only comply with them, but promote them to others around you! If you see something that is unsafe, say something!

Did you know February is American Heart Month - and this week is National Burn Awareness Week? Introducing February’s Safety Topic: First Aid and CPR Training! We cannot predict when we’ll need to use our life-saving training, this is why it’s vital that our office staff and project teams are always prepared to deliver first aid or CPR quickly and effectively. First Aid and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) trainings are preventive by providing steps on how to address injuries in all shapes and forms, as well as performing CPR. These trainings also teach participants how to assess the victim, treat burns, control bleeding, respond to cardiac arrest, measure breathing and circulation, and more.
ICS believes that the health and safety of our team members comes first, and we provide comprehensive First Aid and CPR trainings, resources (i.e. First-Aid Kits, Automated External Defibrillator (AED) equipment, or Emergency Hospital Route Maps), emergency contact information, and any other means to support our team’s health in-office or at project sites. Please take care of one another and have a great weekend!
